The Brew Kettle, which is home to the Top Golf Swing Suite, opened recently in Hall of Fame Village, Canton, Ohio. The village has been expanding its entertainment and dining offerings, and the latest addition features six interactive bays covering a variety of sports, including soccer, hockey, dodgeball, and zombie tag. The rooftop patio offers a beautiful view of Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, with more than a dozen tables, two fire pits, and sofas. In addition, there are TVs all around, and the indoor space covers 6,500 square feet, including a 2,000-square-foot upper deck patio and a small covered patio outside the front door.
The Brew Kettle offers 20 beers on tap and an extensive food menu including burgers, sandwiches, flatbreads, salads, and more. The owner, Brian Weber, says everything is made from scratch, and the wood for the bars and railings came from a Civil War captain’s house and was around 227 years old.
Hall of Fame Village’s director of public relations, John Lytel, says there’s much more for visitors to check out, including a Ferris wheel, zipline, yoga, music, and other activities. A coaster drop ride, Spike It, is coming this summer and is advertised as a 40-foot-tall drop tower ride that emulates a classic touchdown celebration. The Hall of Fame Village is expanding with a football-themed water park and hotel underway.
Local and regional businesses such as Pizza Oven, Heggies Nut Shop, and Brew Kettle are featured in this village. Former NFL player Donald Driver is planning to open a gym and training academy for middle school to professional athletes. For now, visitors can enjoy craft beers poured by Brew Kettle while checking out the sports and entertainment offerings of the village.
The location of the Brew Kettle with Topgolf Swing Suite is 2018 Champions Gateway Suite 101, Canton, which is 90 km from downtown Cleveland. The hours of operation are Sunday-Thursday 11 am-11 pm, Friday-Saturday 11 am-midnight, and parking is free in nearby ‘Honor’ and ‘Respect’ lots.
